Hello, Seniors. Review each of these three current, thematically-related essays from The New York Times. Select the one you find most interesting. Write a response of at least 300 words in which you state, in your own words, the central claim–the thesis–of the essay, and then respond to it. Quoting the text is essential. Be attentive to your syntax and the development of your ideas. Read your work aloud and revise as necessary before you commit to your final copy. Write well and honestly. Enjoy the process.
This is due by 10pm on Thursday, October 29.
